Far out second set
The meat of this show is definitely in the second set jams. Beginning with a ripping version of Truckin' that I agree must be one of the very best of the tour (though 4-26 holds some stake to that claim) the Other One jam that follows is surely one of the most unusual performances of the year, if not ever. Jerry and Phil have an excellent duet out of Truckin', with Phil's bass really percolating. This is all too short lived however, and the band flirts around with the Other One theme for a while, never really committing to song, before heading for a very introspective, minimalistic space. This passage is quite beautiful actually, with the band playing very spacious notes. They finally return to the Other One theme but without any lyrics, Garcia strumming some very unique, melodic chords. The Me and My Uncle that follows is high energy, one of the best of the tour maybe. They then segue back into a quick Other One, singing only the first verse! Really weird stuff. The much more conventional NFA>GDTRFB combo to end things is quite rockin', also possibly one of the best of the tour.

A great show from an amazing tour
Truckin -> The Other One is pretty crazy. The band really gets tangled up in each other during the middle jam.
These days, with the internet, we can basically listen to just about any music we'd ever want to for free, and it's worth mentioning that i'm 19 years old and i never saw jerry garcia live... i like some new bands, including my own, but i still spend alot of my time listening to The Grateful Dead. because it's soooo good. Of all the music that's available today, this music is still some of the very very best. And it always will be.

sound good with a decent subwoofer
this show is not a good one for headphones. one needs decent subwoofer and turn it up nice and loud. then the tape hiss doesn't matter. i wish i had an old macintosh tube amp with some 15" JBLs then maybe i could appreciate the boys much better. Good Lovin' is one of the most unusual and at 20 minutes is quite a jam. The China>Rider is sweet but does cut right after the transition. If I had had this on tape in the eighties I would have played the shit out of it, but now we are so spoiled so we just go on to the next and forget all about these gems with a little hiss.
